PLEASANT VIEW, Utah - City leaders in Pleasant View are delaying a large green waste burn after people living nearby at the Park Springs Circle subdivision complained.

The waste has been sitting on a city owned lot since a powerful windstorm in May of this year.

The City Council voted to burn the pile Thursday morning, but residents complained the city didn't give them enough advance warning.

"Pretty upset, it kind of makes us feel like they don't really care about the residents, I mean, we really haven't gotten much of a nice response from the city at all, and, it just really seems like this is what we're going to do with our land and we're going to do what we want,” said Karen Wade, President of Park Springs Circle HOA.

Due to neighborhood opposition and concerns from the Division of Air Quality, the city decided not to set the pile on fire and will reconsider its options after talking with the DAQ.
